Jeff's 240z build

Better to be lucky than good.

Arrived home to spend the afternoon in the office only to find the delivery bloke backing out of the driveway having left a card in the letter box. So the rubber kit arrived. Had to have a quick look but there is paying work to be done so I had to resist the temptation to stay in the shed and go through it.

I ended up getting the complete weather strip and rubber kit from Z Car Source. https://zcarsource.com/complete-weatherstrip-rubber-kit-240z-70-73-new

its basically got everything rubber in it. Total cost delivered to my door was just under $1170.00. It took about three weeks to arive from when I ordered it but the shipping was only 5 days of that. When comparing what you get in this kit to the Rare Spares kit for $985.00 it was a simple choice. A few other suppliers in the US have comparable kits but the shipping cost from Z Car Source was very good.

Car Yoga was the order of the day.

Finished off fitting off the heater and fan assembly fitted the steering column the peddle box and the dash.

Then moved onto finishing off the breaks in the engine bay and sticking some of the rubber bits down/on.

I must say I am impressed with what I have seen so far of the rubber components that arrived this week. There are just so many goodies with lots of small items I’m not even sure where they go yet.

Ill head off to work tomorrow with a new found flexibility J.

Nice Jeff, really enjoying watching your car come together. We appear to be doing the reassembly process on our respective cars in a completely opposite way. Just goes to show there is more than 2 ways to skin a cat.

A few old friends were re united this weekend. Engine gear box are back in the car. Half the exhaust has been fitted. Both L and R quarter windows have new rubbers and have been shoe horned into position (that was a job and a half with the new rubbers). Plus a few more small jobs. Progressing a bit slowly as I have been distracted by a new ride in my life. Picked up a new MTB a few weeks ago and it’s so much fun to ride.

Thanks Dave

Yep the Meta 29. 170mm up front and 160mm down back. Long and low. Descends like a  DH bike but still climbs like a trail bike. Bloody ripper.

@CBR Jeff thanks champ. I haven't been biking for a while now since my knee injury a few years back. Will be fun to get out on some nice tracks and have some fun for a change, Its easy to get comfortable these days.
